"Toyota knows the problem is an intermittent electrical problem. Every mechanic's nightmare and hard to duplicate. Ever had your computer lock up -- you then restart it -- and it works fine again?"
"The reactions to Toyota's recalls are out of proportion. Maybe Americans expect a lot of recalls from GM, Ford, etc., and that's why they didn't react as much in the past. I don't think Americans are fair with Toyota."
"Toyota would rather spend money on P.R. than fix the damn problem! This has been happening for years. They can get away with it in Japan, but not in the U.S. You could not pay me to drive one of these cars!"
"The difference is that Toyota is acting like the American auto industry of the 1970's. Sure...Ford, GM, and Chrysler still have recalls, as well as Honda, Nissan, and Hyundai. The difference today is that while a company such as Ford may still have recalls on models they don't have to be dragged into Congress with the CEO crying his eyes out and apologizing about it to get it fixed."
